4 Tips to Keep Hot Flashes at Bay
Ladies, let's face it. Whether you're already there, or your time is just around the corner - menopause is NOT a laughing matter. It's frustrating and uncomfortable and annoying to no end. From throwing open windows, to tearing layers off, to bundling back up because your body can't decide whether it's hot or cold - it's a constant battle that women have to face. However, Traveling Breeze knows that by better understanding the change your body is going through, you can be better prepared to face it confidently.
Hot flashes are the most common symptom of menopause and perimenopause. While the cause is unknown, hot flashes may be related to changes in circulation. Hot flashes happen when the blood vessels near the skin's surface dilate to cool. This causes the body to sweat to cool down. Some women also experience a rapid heart rate or chills. Unfortunately, you can't completely avoid hot flashes during menopause, but there are some things you can do to help prevent or lessen the severity of them. Traveling Breeze is here to share some triggers to avoid that may cause hot flashes, and ideas on how you can keep hot flashes at bay:
Prevent Hot Flashes by Avoiding these Triggers:
- Spicy foods
- Tight clothing
- Cigarette smoke
4 Ways to Keep Hot Flashes at Bay:
- Stay cool. Keep your bedroom cool at night by using a fan or opening windows to create good air circulation. Turn down the temperature to a cool, but comfortable setting.
- Meditate. Practice deep, slow abdominal breathing. When you relax, your heart rate slows. Every time your heart beats it sends a pressure wave through the arteries. When the pressure reaches the brain, the electrical activity changes - which controls your body's response to stress.
- Exercise. While it isn't proven, being overweight may be associated with having hot flashes during menopause. Regular exercise can help you maintain weight, relieve stress, and improve your mood.
